EMC | DATA DOMAIN DEDUPLICATION STORAGE SYSTEMS
INTRODUCTION to DEDUPLICATION
EMC® Data Domain®deduplication storage systems deduplicated data inline- during the backup and archive process- so that data lands on disk already deduplicated, requiring a fraction of the disk space of the original dataset. Backup and archive data can be retained onsite longer for fast, reliable restores from disk. IT organizations can leverage the existing backup infrastructure to accommodate complementary archive workloads by simply adding expansion storage, thereby consolidating backup and archive data on the same system for a cost-effective solution. Backup and archive data can then be replicated offsite faster with minimal bandwidth for safe, tape-free disaster recovery.
Data Domain in the Distributed Enterprise
Deduplicated data can be stored onsite for immediate restores and longer-term retention on disk and replicated over the WAN to a remote site for disaster recovery operations-- eliminating the need for tape-based backups-- or for consolidating tape backups to a central location. Data Domain systems provide flexible replication topologies to optimize your backups such as selective, bi-directional, many-to-one, one-to-many, cascaded, and full system mirroring.

Data Domain systems integrate easily into your existing environment, so you can leverage the benefits of deduplication across workloads, infrastructure, and backup and arching applicantions. A single Data Domain system can be used for backup and recovery protection of enterprise applications (Oracle, Microsoft®Exchange,VMware®,and others), archingand online reference storage.

Data Domain systems provide network-efficient replicantion for disaster recovery, remote office data protection, and multisite tape consolidation. Data Domain replicates only the deduplicated data over the wide area network (WAN), making network-based replication fast, reliable, and cost-effective.

Why Choose Data Domain?
High-Speed Deduplication
Deduplication reduces the amount of disk storage needed to retain and protect data by an average of 10 to 30 times, making disk a cost-effective alternative to tape. Data on disk is available online and onsite for longer retention periods, and restores become fast and reliable.

EMC Data Domain systems deduplicate data inline—during the backup and archive process—so that the data lands on disk already deduplicated, requiring a fraction of the disk space of the original dataset.

Seamless Integration
EMC Data Domain Deduplication Storage systems integrate easily with existing infrastructures and can be used seamlessly with a variety of data movers across both backup and archive workloads. This enables a single Data Domain system to be used for backup and recovery of the entire enterprise including Oracle, Microsoft, VMware, IBM i, and mainframe environments as well as file and email, database, and enterprise content management archiving.
Network-Efficient Replication
With Data Domain systems, organizations can replicate backup and archive data offsite faster, with minimal bandwidth for safe, tape-free disaster recovery. Data Domain systems provide flexible replication topologies to optimize your backups such as full system mirroring, selective, bidirectional, many-to-one, one-to-many, and cascaded.
Safety and Reliability
he EMC Data Domain Data Invulnerability Architecture provides the industry’s best defense against data integrity issues. Inline write and read verification protects against, and automatically recovers from, data integrity issues during data ingest and retrieval. Unlike other enterprise arrays or file systems, continuous fault detection and self-healing features protect data throughout its lifecycle on all Data Domain systems.
